  3. 3. The Citizens Electronic Access to Public Services Act (eGov Law 11/2007) Recognises the citizens’ right to interact with PublicAdministration by electronic means → obligation to publicadministrations to enable electronic access to their services. Regulates principles, rights. Regulates basic aspects of IT use in administrativeprocedures. Includes a title on Cooperation of Public Administrations with asection on the reuse of applications and transfer oftechnologies. + Legal development: - RD 1671/2009, development of specific aspects of Law 11/2007. - RD 3/2010, National Security Framework - RD 4/4010, National Interoperability Framework - ... 3
  4. 4. eGov Law 11/2007 and the reuse of applications Includes a title on Cooperation of Public Administrations with asection on the reuse of applications and transfer oftechnologies. [art. 45] Reuse of applications of PublicAdministrations: P.A.s may make available to any other P.A. their applications, without any requirement for compensation of any type or the need of an agreement. These applications may be declared as OSS. [art. 46] Technology transfer within P.A.s: P.A.s shall keep directories of applications for free reuse. The General State Administration shall keep the Technology Transfer Center (CTT). Details in the National Interoperability Framework. 4
  5. 5. National Interoperability Framework The Spanish NIF is a legal text (Royal Decree 4/2010)It develops the provisions about interoperability foreseen in eGov. Law 11/2007, art42. A set of direct statements to build and improveinteroperability. To be followed by all Public administrations intheir relations between them and with citizens. 5
  6. 6. National Interoperability Framework What to do to facilitate, improve and develop interoperability? Principles: Integral, multidimensional and multilateral approach. Takes into account the dimensions : Org., Semantic,Technical. States the Use of standards . States the use of common infrastrutures andservices for multilateral interactions. Conditions for the reuse of applications and otherinformation objects. e-Signature and certificates. e-Document: measures for recovery and preservation. + Tecnical norms & supporting instruments. 6
  7. 7. Applicable licensing conditions[RD 4/2010] Art. 16 Applicable Licensing conditions tells P.A.s to: Take into account that the aim is the use and thereuse, as well as protection against exclusive appropriation by a third party. For applications declared as OSS, use licences which assurethat shared programmes, data or information can be reused: Can be executed for any purpose. Let its source code be known. Can be modified or improved. Can be redistributed to other users with or without changes if the derived work keeps these four guarantees. Take into account the European Union PublicLicence (EUPL), without prejudice of other licences that can guaranteethe same rights. 7
  8. 8. Directories of reusable applications[RD 4/2010] Article 17. Directories of reusable applications tellsP.A.s to: Deploy directories for the free reuse of Applications. The General State Administration - > the Technology Transfer Center (CTT). Link directories for free reuse of applications, also with those ofthe EU. Take into account the available solutions for its freereuse that can satisfy needs. Publish the source code, as possible, in directories to favourshare, reuse and collaborate. 8
  9. 9. Instruments to support reuse: Technology Transfer Center CTT[Law 11/2007, art. 46, RD 4/2010, art. 17]CTT, common repository for reuse, includes: Common infrastructures and services: description, FAQs, ... Application sw: code version control, mailing lists, forum, surveys ,... Tools for collaboration, Technical guidelinesLinked with other repositories: Regional: Rep. Junta Andalucía, ForjaLinex (Extremadura), Lafarga (Cataluña), mancomun (Galicia), ... EU: OSOR.EU 9
  10. 10. Instruments to support reuse: CENATIC [Law 56/2007, add. Disp. 14] [RD 4/2010, add. Disp. 3]Services to P.A.s Advise on OSS procurement & release. Certification services on OSS issues 10 reasons for P.A.s Project development. to release sw: Better efficiency.OSS industry sector Interoperability Transfer of knowledge between Transparencydevelop. communities. ICT ecosystem Support development of skills in OSS. Legal and tech. advise on OSS Transfer of models, release & tendencies. Knowledge economy Improve competitivityDevelopment community LocalisationIdentification of solutions. Privacy & securityCommunities around released OSS. Share, reuse & collaborate. 10
  11. 11. A case example: Release of @Firma Client The code has been released as open source (EUPL v1.1 and GPL v3dual licensing model). Legal study about release and licensing carried out. Ongoing development of procedures for incident management androadmap. Use of forge collaboration tools provided by CTT. 11
  12. 12. Conclusions (I) Our legal framework of eGov recognizes therole of interoperability and of the reuseof applications. There is an explicit recognition that shareand reuse contribute tointeroperability. There are statements in our legalframework to promote, facilitate anddevelop the reuse of applications. There is an effort ongoing to developinstruments that support the reuse policy. 12
  13. 13. Conclusions (II)Main challenges ahead: To improve awareness about reuse and motivation to participate in collaboration practices. To consolidate instruments for reuse. To put in practice the reuse using the instruments provided. To find and develop adequate community models. 13
